Chamakh to choose Gunners

Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has reportedly set his sights on joining Arsenal next summer, having seen a move to England fail to materialise in the last two transfer windows.

The 26-year-old Morocco international has also attracted interest from Liverpool, Tottenham and Sunderland, but Chamakh would prefer to link up with the Gunners.

He told L'Equipe:"My future? Well, I hold all the cards, I have no reason to be under pressure but everyday passing by, I am a little less a Bordeaux player.

"My choice is to join the Premier League and if I could choose I will go to Arsenal.

"Bordeaux has brought me so much. I will soon clearly state things so the club can prepare to find my replacement peacefully.

"Both on mental and physical levels, I am at my best. Three years ago, I was still a little crazy. Now I can manage my efforts, which allows me to be more clear-sighted at the end of the match.

"I have improved, but I can still improve. I am not only happy to play anymore. I have become someone who wants to win.

"I am more a scorer, but not enough yet. There are too many situations where I still make a pass for a player in a better position."
